Sauvage Parfum is a highly concentrated interpretation of Sauvage with an extreme freshness bathed in warm oriental tones and an animal beauty that comes to life on the skin.
To compose Sauvage Parfum, François Demachy, Dior Perfumer-Creator, drew inspiration from a wild, unspoiled expanse beneath a blue-tinged night sky, as the intense aromas of a crackling fire rise into the air. Its trail unfurls notes of Mandarin, Tonka Bean and Sandalwood.
Sauvage Parfum is the fragrance of a new frontier, an interpretation with an enriched and intoxicating trail that celebrates the magic of wide-open spaces.
"Sauvage is an endless score. Its incredibly dense composition is shaped with subtle nuances to create unique flashes of light.
For Sauvage Parfum, I imagined the impact when intense freshness meets the smooth depth of an oriental. I maintained the powerful soul of Sauvage by giving it nocturnal accents, an animal attraction and rounder facets."
Mandarin and Bergamot from Reggio di Calabria
For the House of Dior, François Demachy chose an exclusive Bergamot that he shaped with local producers to obtain a "custom" signature. His Bergamot is a whirlwind of juicy freshness that seems to sweep up everything in its path. Drenched in the Calabrian sun, it is fruitier and develops unique, slightly peppery and zesty facets. For Sauvage Parfum, it welcomes a plump Mandarin note that lends it a fruitier, rounder quality.
Virginian Cedar and Sandalwood essence from Sri Lanka
Sri Lankan Sandalwood essence heightens and envelops the entire composition. This dense, addictive wood unleashes the full power of its milky, creamy accords. Its almost "hormonal" note is enchanting, joined by Virginian Cedar that surprises with an unexpected "jammy" raspberry facet.
Vanilla absolute from Papua New Guinea
Vanilla absolute from Papua New Guinea unfurls an irresistibly delicious attraction with smoky accents that give it a more virile touch. Harvested green and then soaked in hot water, this exceptional Vanilla from Papua New Guinea is processed using an innovative extraction method that restores the complex power of its aromas. In Sauvage Parfum, it is wrapped in a slightly bitter, delicious and mouthwatering Tonka Bean.
The powerful aromatic freshness of Sauvage Parfum is illuminated by the sizzle of a plump, spicy Mandarin. Heady swirls of luscious Tonka Bean with leathery and bitter aromas are enlaced in a trail dominated by precious Sri Lankan Sandalwood.
Sourced from a Sri Lankan plantation that has worked with Dior for over 10 years, the Sandalwood in Sauvage Parfum boasts rich nuances and exceptional qualities derived from special farming practices.
A difficult plant to cultivate, it is supervised during the early stages of growth and then 'released' into a totally wild plantation where nature takes its course.
In this harsh, natural environment with no human intervention, each tree pursues its growth, battling to spread its branches and thrive, sometimes reaching 100 years of age and growing over 12 meters tall! This is what creates the unique olfactory qualities of the rare, powerful and rich Sandalwood essence of Sauvage.
